Margery M. Oberschulte, a lifelong Saint Paul resident, died on September 4, 2021 at age 102. She was born August 2, 1919, to Rev. Frederick L. & Louise Oberschulte. Her father founded Our Saviour’s Lutheran Church in 1914 and served until 1946, its longest-serving pastor. Marge was baptized and confirmed at Our Saviour’s, so it is especially fitting that her funeral be there.
Marge graduated from Harding High School in 1937 and from the University of Minnesota in 1941, majoring in Art Education. Art was her passion and refuge, even to the end of her life.
She also worked as a teacher, an occupational therapist and an airline stewardess.
Marge was preceded in death by her parents; sisters, Helen (Richard) Norman, Mildred (Wenzel) Lindfors, Myra (Edward) Schleh, and Doris (John) Kromschroeder; and brother, Dr. Frederick R. (Jeanne) Oberschulte. She is survived by 18 nieces & nephews.
Our thanks to the caring staff at St. Anthony Park Home, where she spent her final years, and to Pastor Brian Scoles, who visited her there regularly. We are also grateful to the members of Our Saviour’s who greeted her warmly whenever she attended and who remembered her on her birthday, and especially the unforgettable 100th birthday celebration.
Funeral Service is 11:00AM on Tuesday, September 28, 2021 at Our Saviour’s Lutheran Church, 674 Johnson Parkway, Saint Paul. Visitation one hour prior to the service. **The family requests that those attending be masked and fully vaccinated.** Private family interment at Union Cemetery in Maplewood.
Memorials suggested to Our Saviour's or Artability (peopleincorporated.org), a St. Paul program for artists with mental illness.
